I am ashamed to join all you good people because I haven't been diagnosed yet. In 1997 it became evident to me that I was having problems. My right hand would wave not tremor. I learned to recognize it so quickly that no one knew about it. As different symptoms came about, I also learned to compensate and hide them. It now seems that I hid the extent of symptoms even from myself! Life went on with its problems and blessings and yet I would occassionally tell my family that something was seriously wrong with me. This Sep. I discovered how much I do have tremors. Now they agree. But my doctor isn't sure of PD. He first said I was just depressed. I agreed that was nothing new, I told him that I was 'born' depressed! I can cope with the tremors, it is the confusion, forgetfulness, mental incapabilities that I once could do. Am I barking up the wrong tree and I don't have PD? Thank you for letting me get this off, since today I am able to do some things like this that I am not always capable to do.
